Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tiny House Nation is a reality show that features people building and moving into tiny homes. There are some mild disagreements about building choices and, on occasion, some creepy building spaces and construction problems. The overall series also talks a lot about the eco-friendly "tiny-house lifestyle," a movement that encourages people to use only the space they need. There's nothing here to really worry about, but kids probably won't be interested unless they're architecture or environment buffs.
Is It Any Good?
The show explores the tiny house "movement," which involves a commitment to green living in small spaces with some inventiveness and a willingness to let go of most material goods. Meanwhile, the hosts show how good design, creative thinking, and, when possible, repurposing are central to making the most of every square inch of space without making a home feel constrictively small.
Tips on how to make the most of any space, including using lots of natural light, specific paint colors, and items that serve multiple purposes, are useful regardless of the size of your home. But the message this show sends about how little space and few possessions we really need to live comfortable lives is a positive one.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
